Remembrance Week at Syracuse University Continues Syracuse University Remembrance Week Continues

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) – Remembrance Week at Syracuse University continued this week on the Shaw Quadrangle.

This year marks the 34th anniversary of the tragic bombing of Pan Am flight 103, which killed all 270 people aboard. Of those, 35 were Syracuse University students.

Thirty-five Remembrance and Lockerbie scholars sat in solidarity on the Quad to honor those that were lost in the tragedy from 1:28 p.m. to 2:03 p.m., marking the length of the flight.

Another way that the victims are being honored are by 270 blue and white flags in between the Schine Student Center and S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Each flag is representative of a person on the flight.

Buildings around campus, including Hall of Languages, Hendricks Chapel and the JMA Wireless Dome will light up blue at night throughout the week, as another way to remember the victims.

The goal of Remembrance Week is to honor all those lost in the terrorist attack and bringing the Syracuse community together to do so.

Events planned by the scholars will continue throughout the week up until Saturday. Most of the events are free and open to the public.
